india. we learned from democrat senator claire mccaskill that, quote, if we go too far with this, that is cap and trade, then all we are going to do is chase more jobs to china and india where they've been putting up coal-fired plants every 10 minutes. in sum, we have a slew of hearings in three unsuccessful votes on the senate floor. actually i'd say four because we rejected the kyoto treaty in the beginning. the democrats taught us that cap and trade is a great big tax and will raise electricity prices on consumers i would have to say in a regressive way, send jobs to china and india all without any impact on global temperature, so off we go into the august recess secure in the knowledge that cap and trade is riddled with flaws and that democrats are seriously divided over one of president obama's top domestic policy priorities. and we also know that according to a recent polling the american public is increasingly unwilling to pay anything, as the polling has shown, to fight global warming. but all this does not mean cap and trade is dead and gone. it's very much alive as demo
people in india are tangling innocense over balconies for a 50-foot free fall. >> we will get a break from . >> well, we had a very active day today weather wise. hazy sunshine for most of the daytime today. and then right around 2:15 line of showers and storms developed and brought severe weather to our area. but the thing now is -- that we are dealing with clear skies out there and things calming down down at the inner harbour. nice evening in store. dealing with decreasing temperatures. and dealing with temperatures right around in the mid 70s for today. 75 degrees right around -- right now. partly cloudy skies. winds calm. and humidity up at 90 percent. and the dewpoint is at 68 degrees. on the doppler radar, we will see a dry sweep, and most of the activity is now moving out to the atlantic ocean. bigger picture, it was associated with a cold front that really moved in our area for today. brought a lot of severe weather. not only towards our area here in maryland. and dc. but pretty much along all along i-95 from bosston to new york city down toward baltimore and dc as well. so c
. we will start right on time. the ambassador from india is here. [laughter] [applause] but councilman jack evans is here. [applause] we have representatives from different embassies, as well. let me begin this morning by introducing our special guest, dr. christina romer. as many of you may know, she is the chair of the council of economic advisers. that position was established by the employment act of 1946 where it was decided that the president of united states needed independent, objective economic analysis and advice. from the time that the council was greeted the late 40's, it has had some of the most distinguished economists serving in that position. it has had a long history of very distinguished economists and dr. romer is within the tradition. she is what the best known economists in the country and one of the best known macro economist in the country. she served for 20 years as a member of the faculty of the university of california, berkeley. in that position, she became an expert on the depression, the causes and consequences, and how the u.s. government responded. she ca
wonder because they are on the other side of pakistan. it would be a good strategic movement if india made the move towards bin laden, if he is still alive. another question, perhaps we are already monitoring bin laden? perhaps our intelligence has him on the phone all the time? could that be possible? guest: i wish it were, but it would speak to some kind of nefarious plot. if he were on the phone and we have not killed him. if we are listening to him on the phone we can geo-locate him and he would be yesterday's news. so, i seriously doubt we're listening to him. secondly, part of the problem we have in afghanistan is we have already allowed a large indian presence, both economically, and they are doing a lot of construction with people dressed as civilians but who are really military engineers. people in the u.s. do not realize the degree of paranoia between two nuclear-armed countries, pakistan and india. to allow an indian military forces into pakistan would turn the pakistan knees entirely away from us. -- the pakistanis away from us. it is interesting as an idea, but in the lon
and japan or india talk to these two guys and ask them questions. i thought it was a perfect setup for senator kennedy. he was an experienced politician. it would be no contest. i persuaded senator kennedy to except and they did and it was carnage. nobody wanted to be more decisive than reagan did that evening. senator kennedy looked at the monitor in the room rather than the interviewer and the result is that the people watching saw him being kind of shifty i'eyed. he was trying to be very precise about vietnam. whereas one oregon was superb and he gave wonderful, reassuring pro-american answers. for years after that, whenever we would have a discussion on the kennedy staff, i would take a position and he would turn to me and say "you're the fellow that got me in that debate with ronald reagan, archer? are you? " >> [unintelligible] the former aide to ronald reagan wrote -- >> that is about right. since i was running for the legislature in california. >> how much of this french ship exists today -- a french ship exists today? -- freniendship exists today? >> he was probably involv

promoting a film about racial profiling. people were really upset about this in india. the indian government said it is taking this up with the u.s. embassy there. a u.s. customs official told the associated press that the questioning was part of a routine process. >>> a group the veterans got the welcome they missed when they returned home from vietnam. this special ceremony was held at ft. campbell, kentucky. many vets say when they originally came back from vietnam, they were often met with angry protestors and not welcome home ceremonies. a spokesman for ft. campbell says he hopes there are more ceremonies like this one at other bases. >>> a possible tornado ripped up trees and tossed around cars. this is in southern florida. according to local reports, 23 homes in cape coral were damaged. there were also three fires because of lightning. neighbors met yesterday cleaning up the damage. >> the power was out. we couldn't close the garage door and stuff was flying in the garage and sucking out of the garage. it was crazy. >> as everything swirled and slapped around, things were over here. t
to expand its capability to strike land targets. that is a potential threat to india, according to senior administration and congressional officials. meanwhile, there is a related store this morning on the front page of "the washington post," with this headline -- the u.s. says metrics to assess or success. -- war success. back to your calls come stan from oklahoma, is this the scary season for obama? caller: yes, it is. i think there is much to begin. as much as i was impressed with the personal tributes to senator kennedy yesterday from his family, particularly, i think there is something unseemly about the emphasis on health care bill. i know that he passionately wants to get something approved, but there is much work to be done. we cannot ignore the fact that the majority of american people do not approve of the health plan as it is now. host: let me read you something based on the republican radio address from a mike enzi. this is in both the washington post and the new york times. a republican member of the senate's gang of six healthcare negotiators sharply criticized democratic su
the whole thing when he was a soldier in india. but you can read condensed versions which a actually pretty good. gibbon is very wrong about religion. but he's very right about a lot of things, too. and it's just splendid, splendid reading. edmond burke, reflections on the revolution of france. i know everyone likes to put this book on their list but i hope a of you have read it and absorbed it. and if you haven't i encourage you to do so. the first time i came to washinon and started interacting with my fellow conservatives, i thought they must not have read this book. i remember going to a party that was thrown by someone who's quite famousight now, and he was a celebration of the french revolution party because to him this was a great blowor libertarian and democracy and all this sort of thing. i thought you've got to be kidding me. i thought it was crazy then and i still think it was crazy now. the premiums hat areital crucial and true are things that i think rub a lot of people in a knee-jerk way the wrong way. weave the famous line -- the age of chivalry isgone, that of economists and
and ronald reagan the new governor of california and maybe have students from england, japan, india talk to these two guys and ask them questions and have a debate. what do you think? what i thought was a perfect set from senator kennedy. he was after all, a pretty experienced politician as governor of california. exclass pse&b movie star and th accepted and they had the debate and it was carnage. no one has ever won more decisively than reagan did that evening. senator kennedy looked at the monitor in the room rather than at the interviewer and result is that the people watching saw him being kind of shifty eyed. he went along to a great length with answers trying to be precise where as ronald reagan was superb. gave wonderful reassuring pro-american answers. and for the viewers after that, whenever we'd have a discussion in the kennedy staff or the kennedy surroundings and i would take a position i would look at senator kennedy didn't hold, he would turn to me and say, you're the one that put me in the debate with ronald reagan, aren't you? >> i first heard that story from something y
on the ground in the institution to how do we improve the way that they were? just as in india and net they have become more active to tap the intelligence of people that worked in the institutions but also with the public that interacts with and works with government. this is why we created an open government policy making process as we thought about whether the ways we can begin to lower and the race policy impediments that make this the adoption of broadband technology by government to engage the american people we turn to the people to ask us how to do that? instead of drafting a policy then go out for comment when they come too late we actually very much like this process turn the policy making process inside out and went to the people first for their ideas and government employees about how to do this we launched-- three phase process of brainstorming and discussions of the difficult i.d.'s that we are facing and then turning to people in the last few weeks to use a color ever tint drafting tool to create the language we may use to craft open government policies to allow was to use wiki to
the energy race with china and india? the answer is yes. we well, we have that in america, oil reserves throughout the west that rival saudi arabia's deposits, also ail in alaska, and other states. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no, we have coal reserves that have been referred to as the saudi arabia of coal. these are in kentucky, ohio, west virginia, montana and wyoming. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no america has that and more. we have the uranium, wind, solar, bio mass and hydropower. we have it all and can develop it in a responsible way. the authors of cap and trade don't want to develop all american energy resources. they want to start the energy race with china and india two laps behind as opposed to three laps ahead. the more energy america can produce, the stronger the american economy will be. energy development creates jobs, not just green jobs, but real red, white, and blue jobs. we need to keep all the american jobs we can. we need them all, and the solution rests on our shores. thank you, madam chairman. >> thank you, sena
. furthermore when you're faced with competitors like china and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic development in and time of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a system of prosperous, and free future we need to create the most productive, most creative, most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear, i believe that if you set out, say, what would maximize the number of entrepreneurs in america. there are ways to do that. what would maximize the number of smaller businesses created by small business? there are ways to do that. if you say, how can i have the most continuous process of innovation, we know how to do that. it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future, which is high tax, big bureaucracy, and politicians entered. so long term we are going to need budgetary reform legislation. in the last congress more than one dozen bills were introduced to establish entitlement and budget provisions. but all the legislation did was have the same old conversatio

with china and india, that we'll be able to understand that american workers deserve better, and that this is about the beginning of the inclusion of all workers into that economy and all people and communities that deserve to be uplifted, that this will not be an uplifting of yachts, but an uplifting of boats. today is the sound and smell of sweet jus cities. finish pleasure -- justice. >> [inaudible] >> we're doing this together. let me first say that the green the block campaign is not just a campaign, it's a coalition. and so there are already a number of organizations that have signed on to it, so it's not just the hip-hop caucus or green for all doing this alone. how we're going to do this, as i said before, this is not a green jobs moment, it's a clean energy movement, and for us we have to convince our generation that this truly is our lunch counter moment for the 21st century. and we have to go out there and convince them that if we don't make a change now, nine years into the 21st century, there will not be a 22nd century. the time is now. and so with a sense of ur

, in fact, if you showed woodstock the way they showed india in slum dog millionai millionaire, you would have about the same sanitation. and that's -- you know, that's a bad thing and i've been writing this for years, that, in fact, the future that we were dreaming of and trying to work towards did not consistent of squatting in the mud, taking what you were given. it consisted of something more activist. >> right. and you had -- you talked about, also, how this was one of the least -- one of the more poorly organized rock concerts. >> it was horribly organized. >> and even talked about how all the groups were threatened, saying if you ask for money, we're going to call you out. the who basically said, screw you, give us our money. >> it's funny, because that's been the news break from this story. i wrote that in my biography of the who 20 years ago. but now it's news. but i think what happened at woodstock in the 30th anniversary in 1999 where they were gouged by the promotors, where there was arson, where there was rain, took the sheen off it for a lot of people and i think now people
gandhi in india, he would have gotten nowhere if it hadn't been the soviet union looming in the background and it seems me until we reach a point in which poor people are organized and willing to struggle against the wall street capitalists, we're going to continue to see a roll-back of all the gains of the civil rights and the labor movement. i was hoping you'd comment. >> host: thank you shaun from washington state. >> guest: shaun, i don't think we're in any danger of seeing a roll-back of the civil rights movement. the civil rights movement have transformed america. we have other groups from american indians to latinos, gay rights groups, children's rights groups who have emulated the very legal strategy that thurgood marshall used to transform the laws of america and allow for equality and inclusion. i think what you're talking about is more on an economic basis and the increasing class stratification that we see in the united states today. and i'm reminded -- i remember sitting with thurgood marshall and saying to him, you know, if you were a young man today, going
